Hip Hop Connection #7 (August 1989)


Just over six months since I last posted up any HHC scans so I think it's about that time again.

Issue seven of the self proclaimed 'Bible of Hip-Hop' is pretty solid throughout, including interviews with Silver Bullet, The Beastie Boys, Ice Cube, MC Duke and a nice track-by-track breakdown of 'Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip-Hop' by the Blastmaster himself. I've included Normski's snaps again as there's a few good'uns in there, the Big Daddy Kane shot in particular made me laugh! 'Strictly Business' gives news of Demon Boyz parting ways with Music Of Life as well as a Roland R5 Drum Machine up for grabs in the competition. Page 5 features the lyrics from the LL Cool J Flexidic which came free with this issue but unfortunately I no longer own this and have absolutely no idea what happened to it. If anybody reading this does have a copy and could send over a scan it would be much appreciated.

A few decent adverts appear throughout the pages, my favourite being for Gang Starr's debut LP 'No More Mr Nice Guy' which came (in The UK) with a free 'Movin On' 12" and was priced at an amazing £3.99!!!

As always, you can click the thumbnails for super-size, readable scans...

Cheers Krum, top scans fella

Lovin the shot of Cash Money doin some in-store, shame no one gotta shot of Cash givin his Manager a diggin....Wasnt that why they split up?

And that shot of Duke covers all bases for the cunt-eyed hipsters doin their best to do pull off the sartorial look, bloody trendys !
